In a work that strives to do for werewolves what Stoker's Dracula did for vampires, Endore's werewolf, an outcast named Bertrand Caillet, travels round seeking to calm the beast within. An episodic tale, the story wanders through 19th Century France and into hotspots like the Franco-Prussian war. Stunning in its sexual frankness and eerie, fog-enshrouded visions, this novel was decidedly influential for the generations of horror and science fiction authors who came after.

A Hollywood screenwriter who collaborated on scripts like "Mark of the Vampire" with Tod Browning, as well as receiving an Oscar nomination for GI Joe, Guy Endore wrote several novels in addition to his film work. He was blacklisted by the studios in the late 1940s for his political beliefs, slowly faded from the scene and became more involved with the Synanon Foundation (later renamed Synanon Church.)Review:
“First published in 1933, Guy Endore’s The Werewolf of Paris may finally be coming into its own. Like those other horror classics, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Bram Stoker’s Dracula, this notorious novel doesn’t just aim for raw head-and-bloody-bones gruesomeness. Perhaps its closest analogue may actually be still another classic about the savage demons inside us all, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr.Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Endore stresses how much we are all the playthings of dark impulses beyond our understanding.”
- Michael Dirda, The Washington Post
